"I remember my days at school vividly and with great affection. Bolton School has a great tradition in the liberal arts. I've always acted for the love of it and this first love was inspired at Hopefield, the school theatre."

Sir Ian McKellen - Actor and Old Boy

Chess Success for Girls

Saturday, 06 February 2016

Under 9 and Under 11 chess teams from the Junior Girls’ School at Bolton School, performed well in the recent English Primary Schools’ Chess Association Tournament held at Park Road, the Junior Boys’ School. The U9 team gained enough points to see them progress through to the Northern Finals, which will be held in Prestatyn in June.

The chess teams also played in a recent Bolton League fixture with Janani Velayutham winning both her matches to secure a medal.
